"With agiplan, we could count on a reliable partner at our side"

The automation specialist Lenord + Bauer manufactures sensors, controllers and actuators for rail transport, mechanical engineering and the wind energy industry.

The company focuses on custom solutions, product variety and a high level of vertical production. The delivery times are short, and products are available for long periods. The "typical" batch sizes range from one to 30,000 units. Flexibility and quality lead to success: Lenord + Bauer has been growing continually since 1965.

The headquarters of the medium-sized company in a residential area in Oberhausen became too small. Pre-planning and analyses showed that a greenfield solution would be the best option for Lenord + Bauer. A new site was found 7 km away in Gladbeck.

Agiplan's detailed planning focused on a logistics concept, an optimal flow of materials (milk run) and a variable layout of the assembly workstations for lean processes. "With agiplan, we could count on a reliable partner at our side", says Ulrich Marl, Lenord + Bauer managing director.
